Terry was born and lived his early years in Weymouth, Dorset, UK. He grew to love the freedom of the countryside and later took up a career in agriculture. He started out nestling in the villages of West Dorset, learning the way of life and the skills of the business. Then after studying at Agriculture College he yearned to do something different with his life. He took a year in the service of Voluntary Service Overseas where he worked as a care-taker manager at a leprosy centre in Tanzania where he developed a lifetime passion for Africa. He went on to enjoy the overseas life style with all its difficulties and challenges. He lived and worked in the very young Seychelles, and later as Farm Manager at the University of Malawi in Central Africa. A forced homecoming required him to return to the UK and he went on to spend twenty four years in North Yorkshire. There, as a Land Agent he ran a vast agricultural estate for a privately owned company. Finally moving on to run an equally challenging commercial portfolio of properties across North and West Yorkshire, before taking early retirement in France and now east Devon, where he lives with his wife.
